"While I completely share your frustration, it is not true that a
company can "easily" produce prototypically accurate scale models at
the level that would please most people on this list, even when the
company has done it's homework. Translating photos and drawings of the
prototype into injection molds is not easily done. (Add in cost
constraints, and it just gets harder.) Because a company has the
ability to make an injection molded part, that does not mean they have
the ability to make excellent injection molded parts. Yugo can make a
car, but it is not the case that they could "easily" make Ferraris if
they would "just do their homework"."
Roger that, Larry, but that doesn't excuse the paint and lettering
screwups on these models.
